Hydroponics is a cultivation technique that does not require soil, allows the production of fresh vegetables in reduced spaces, and is very simple to maintain.
Contrary to what many people think, plants do not need soil to grow but only require water, light, air, and minerals. In traditional agriculture, plants grow in the soil by absorbing the minerals in it through the water.
In contrast, with hydroponics, no soil is needed because all the minerals the plants need are introduced directly into the water.
This technique allows more and more urban farmers in cities to produce food of high nutritional quality, from the garden to the plate! Here are 5 reasons why you should produce food in your home with this technique.
